Then came a voice from far away
And from my dreams I wake.
A single word that causes fear
To make most teachers shake:- 'SIR!!!!'
'I know where the water's gone,
where liquid can be found.
I can provide a reason
for this parched and arid ground.'
'See, Beany's nicked the water Sir,
made a most ma-hus-ive dam.
A junior home-made reservoir
built with clodges and a pram.'
'Yes, Beany's forged a mighty lake,
a creative little scheme,
with mortar and a pile of blocks
a quarter-mile upstream.'
So, we were left anhydrous
deep in that juiceless brook
with naught at all to measure
or re-cord in a book.
Now teacher, heed my warning
As you read this anecdote.
Murphy's Law demands respect.
Write a Plan-B lesson note.
